three. feet. began rebels are ready to storm could dump his hometown under nature and show that in a desperate effort to find a fugitive colonel says you're a big government star that i don't quite put all the deals on because. the world war two veteran is easier completed splits production for his cleats is losing his bottle after an appeal against a six month jail sentence are dismissed. until the iowa story new york brace itself put it fast approaching hurricane irene as it will play the consultation on the state of emergency declared.
and a very warm welcome for all of us here in moscow this is also you with me you're there for a while or thanks for joining us fierce fighting is continuing in the beds rebels keep up that search for moammar gadhafi nato coalition forces have launched a tug on his last remaining stronghold such to pave the way for a full scale ground offensive by the rebels they are worried however about gadhafi a stockpile of weapons including mustard gas which they fear the council could decide to use that he's cornered meanwhile borders up running out with numerous reports of atrocities on five sides that while the transitional council's troubles to bring stability have devastated council with pointing in tripoli largely over residents now say severe fuel and food shortages with little electricity only running one side of the city two million people on she's wearing a thing as in libya and brings us this report on the humanitarian side of the conflict. that.
the heavily by the regime is now. in new libya look at these people nobody cares about this believe it you. can. the a people may not know for sure what the future will bring but they know that the past will never return. everything that might remind people of our decades of dictatorship is of the throne this is only for dirty things no only for the things he's fighting has continued since rebel forces and tripoli during the week and much of the city bears the scars of war on top of months of relentless bombing by nato and you have it ends of the bloodshed emerged when hundreds of bodies were found in a hospital abandoned by starfleet in the arrival of rebel forces with no one clear control and many residents now live in fear of anarchy and of armed men from both
sides of the conflict. the basement proudly shows as a trophy one while he took part in the overrunning of conduct his residence double as a zia when we entered resole many weapons and i quote there is no good country anymore the that the man says he would love to have another prize gadhafi has had was it was great. this was my government to show this something to do with their leader. said that she was. so gracious and other kinds that's. still at large. is not yet over there is no. tripoli. and christopher king a logo in the region tore down see that the libyan rebels failed to restore peace
with could be very embarrassing for one of their main supporters the u.s. president. clearly there will still be a few loyalists after the country is under control of the t.n.c. what matters is if the t.n.c. is able to provide the sort of security and police required to prevent any sort of insurgency in the coming months obviously by putting the us this far into the conflict in libya and this is become president obama's war this is something that he cannot afford to lose. likewise if libya has to fall into chaos into an insurgency of some sort after the fall of gadhafi this would reflect poorly upon obama so while i don't believe that he has made it he is a major goal so far there are a lot of risks for obama meanwhile nato allies. countries who rushed together to break down his who are now racing against each other to
secure a lucrative and if you contract. that reports it's not defeat is a new regime and can easily slide into corruption. half a billion dollars from italy now a whopping one point five billion from the u.n. . three hundred million dollars from turkey it's questions abound about the future of the pace here is the money that's been talking the loudest governments have a strong interest in helping out you know. opening up business for. everybody is the reason for its lead foreign minister has the night there's a race on with france to be the first on the ground to restart business in libya but the italians have me to clear their eagerness to maintain the extremely case trade ties they enjoyed and link into the regime but as the money begins to flow to help the national transitional council as it takes power a big question mark wayne xavier exactly here these past funds belong to indeed get
our streets which is coming to an end the borderline between the wealthy the proud well pocket of his family and the wealth of the state were not very clear so it's hard to see how much of this money was a direct emanation of the darkest wealth of wealth and how much of it was actually . could be categorised as libyan assets exactly family were often accused of easing libya's riches and their own personal pocket money now there are concerns that the unfreezing of libyan assets without effective monitoring key to aid in the flood gates to new corruption leaders know a lot of opportunities and everybody's trying to. you know it's sort of. trying to exploit this war as best everybody police could have always
gas and infrastructure projects to follow as the water on country rebuilds. one it seems wants a slice of the action a war is now raising this principle for western economies western interests leave. you destroying your view for every european it's like. it's not just italy that have been trying to keep the national transitional council on side like it or not the many western countries a place for libya i mean big business there for. the land and regehr peace activist who was only there earlier this month says france is a ready these in eastern in the race for oil. by nato and by qatar and saudi arabia committed to a lot of crimes and they say the need is not long enough for around a stand her under the new younger viewers in this war that has already conquered.
for twenty eight billion dollars or even years only contact for a one point five billion dollars but because maybe didn't do so marches or race economies are making the war so i am going to read making. going on now the fallout fall from the mass riots in england has put prison populations there to record high but british officials of funds face to jail a world war two veteran looked out for recording a court hearing of his lawyer and finds out how the country who fought for became one of his writings. british prisons are full to bursting the courts are working overtime sending young people to jail for their role in the recent riots in england and if they're sent to leeds prison they'll be languishing alongside eighty five year old norman scar he plied the arctic sea cheering the second world war serving
his country taking essential supplies to the soviet union on the most dangerous journey in the world and now he's serving six months in prison on the whim of a british judge his crime recording a court hearing he said he did it because he's hard of hearing but the judge didn't accept that it was a very harsh sentence and i believe he was because she is uncovering the corruption in the judiciary you see them frown upon me scott is no stranger to the legal system he won a case in the european court of human rights at planning secret hearings yet still some cases in england or heard behind closed doors and recording and taking photographs is forbidden unlike in other e.u. countries scarth attends demonstrations where he shouts about corruption in the police and judiciary saying lawyers police and courts are in cahoots and regularly persecuted gag those who disagree with them that's why m.p.
john hemming suspects the judge was trying to shut him up we have in theory in this country something called free will expression that is people's right to speak out about what they see as wrong as long as the telling the truth and i'm very worried this is an attempt to get an elderly gentleman who may not always be right but he has a right to. luckily for scott he has friends with knowledge of the law and they're acting for him normally the portico for his case here to the royal courts of justice but they don't feel justice is being served to heaven meanwhile the playing field being denied it then chill medication in prison according to reports conditions in leeds prison are bad the war veteran can't get any exercise because he's unable to walk for the entire hour allocated scott also says he's being denied access to a lawyer by his jailers experience enjoy the every day and everything will be sleazy church. norman scarth has vowed to keep fighting to expose corruption
just as he fought all those years ago to keep rush's amount of his country the irony is the country he fought for is now the one he's fighting against laura and it's artsy london. this is a place in the program we'll take a trip with russia close not. some of the thousand kilometers from moscow to see here kiran the remarkable story of the ninety eight percent of baby orphans that are new family before they turn six. reports of the first deaths are coming from north carolina and virginia as hurricane irene launches coastal cities in the two states with one hundred eighty five kilometer per hour winds u.s. authorities say six people including an eleven year old boy have been killed so far fourteen trees are so enormous the storm has toppled power lines and more than four hundred thousand people are now without interesting irene is heading for new where
flooding is expected in parts of. this is public transport service including the subway has been shut down and residents were ordered to leave some coastal and low lying areas. as well as storm. public transportation in new york city including the metro and buses have come to a halt as new york city prepares for this dangerous and possibly destructive hurricane parts of the city was was filled with crowds of people as you saw officials evacuating new yorkers from parts of areas that were deemed extremely dangerous for the first time in the history of the new york city mayor ordered mandatory evacuation of what he called the low rise areas these are areas all throughout new york there are very close to the water and it is estimated that more than two hundred thousand new yorkers will have to evacuate their homes and go
to shelters close to seventy shelters have been set up in new york city in preparation for this hurricane hurricane irene it's also been recommended to anyone that lives above the tenth floor to a vacuum wait from their. building we spent the whole day packing everything out so we're ready we hope it just goes right by as a cause anybody any damage we're just getting the supplies here we have some food back home getting some. little bit of extra things just because us president barack obama has issued a state of emergency for new york meaning that new york will receive federal funding obama did cut his vacation short and headed back to the white house on friday he said that this is a historic storm and everyone and its path should prepare for the worst some engineers believe that the infrastructure of new york city because it is so old may not be able to withstand the powers of the wind that there may be flooding in
tunnels of new york city some airports may be flooded homes possibly even flooded and weren't destroyed so at this point everybody is preparing for the worst bracing themselves hoping it's not going to be as bad as forecasted but if it is it is not clear what will be of new york come monday. and of course we're closely following developments in the u.s. on our web site as the worst hurricane in a generation new york approaches right now you're watching live images from north carolina so no going to see dot com to witness the brunt of the deteriorating weather on the american eastern seaboard including life from because the seas are closed ever held in the state of north carolina which is there to be. the pentagon's issued a report warning that china is on track to becoming a leading military power twenty twenty by beijing has called the documents
distorted it claims the country is expanding military capabilities could potentially destabilize the balance of power in asia over the past year china has developed a new style fights on an aircraft carrier and has made a record number of space no injuries however is the normal progression of its technology and is not targeting any surprise that any explanation military affairs on. the us is not seeing its own interests and making a fuss around china. there's a lot of hype going on right now in the united states and some of the you speak cause they want to raise the chinese stocks are the real big danger that we can keep a large military footprint in asia but it also has to do with internal matters to push to cut the military budget that forms companies and you know it curious or digging in their heels and shoulders trowing up this kind of chinese bugaboo aircraft carriers this missile which can sink your craft here it's not even
majestic keep in mind we have one here that carrier which is one half the size of american aircraft carriers you know militants have chan and then it's clash aircraft carrier so even if they built one or two or even three you are not christian areas they're nowhere near the level they would need to challenge the united states. i've heard it turns out of a new political chapter where the former vice president elected as the country's new leader alexander and succeeds presidents are given couch in office and many thanks again to five percent of the vote ahead of to other candidates and according to the chairman of the electoral commission it turned out it was the highest in the post soviet era. and reports now about the challenges the new president faces. former vice president alexander are involved is now the president of the caucasus republic of our cars here the central election commission announced that he took
fifty five percent of the one hundred two votes cast and they put voter turnout at a high seventy two percent all of this was made necessary by the death of the previous president surrogate which on the twenty ninth of may he died suddenly leaving power vacuum in his place there because you people are going to expect a lot from mr and club primarily building up cars use ruined infrastructure after a long struggle for independence from georgia three years ago russia recognize the independence of our cars here after a war away to the east in south a sense here and fears that the georgia may attack cars here as well but that was just the end of a long struggle for independence which started after the collapse of the soviet union and left a lot of the young republics infrastructure in ruins primarily the famous ones famous soviet holiday resorts along the coast here that will need to be built and
also the agriculture and fruit growing industries also very famous here but now very weak and if mr and cloud can build up both of those things he'll help this young republic to stand on its own two feet again. more news for you in grief right now one of the cut is twenty three says has been a code in pakistan's tribal region over as is done that's according to american officials. there was reportedly a second on the list of america's five most wanted militants in the region it was believed to be a close confidant of a style of bin laden was killed in pakistan by american special forces in may. drawing bin laden in afghanistan as a teenager in the eighty's and was well known as an explosives expert. at least eighteen soldiers have been killed in a suicide attack on a military academy twenty were found in the double explosion in the city of churchill almost two hundred kilometers west of the capital has two bombers set off explosives as soldiers were breaking their ramadan fast while the as an islamist
extremist violence for years in the country there have been more times recently blamed on the local on the whole. corruption activities desirea has agreed times his twelve day hunger strike that this country's parliament five days and you go off to months tens of thousands of people many wearing the seventy four year old trademark white cap have been protesting to support his call for new corruption legislation calling him a new one hundred gandhi a string of high profile corruption scandals one which might cost the government thirty nine billion dollars it's part of a privatized new public anti-corruption mulched always to be sought out but it's likely to take some time. right now we continue to explore russia in the latest in our close up series looking at life across the biggest country in the world.
this time we're all one thousand kilometers from mostly to visit the camera it's a place full of community spirit what family bonds a strong so much so does not know that nothing takes percent of all friends and care of find a family before they turn six and she's a good girl that has been finding out the reasons for this are not complete hi steve. apart from being a personal tragedy and it difficult to overcome being an orphan there's also a social problem in russia there are thousands of thousands of orphans but the fact most of them have either parents or relatives outside of the orphanage but these people simply do not want to look after them or caliber trusted to do so so this is something that needs to be solved on a social level general social problem the for these children to be taken away how can they be tackled so it's not necessarily something that either an individual orphanage or an individual part of russia can provide but then the same region to
try to say ok we're being dealt with all these orphans we're receiving all these people but at least all we can do is provide all of them a new home and that's what they're trying to do as you can see more records. in russia it's hard enough to find a new family for healthy orphans it's even harder for children like these all of them diagnosed with serious physical mental or psychological disabilities. but here at kira's orphanage number one they manage it while in russia there are currently a hundred and fifty thousand children who haven't been adopted here ninety percent of all friends find a new family before their six. many orphanages exist by themselves in isolation we are reaching out to the potential parents and the authorities and working with them. first course of action is to try and place the children back with parents who often give them up scared off the diagnoses but often it shows that with the right
care these children can lead normal lives that parents have to prove their attitude has changed but other potential doctors their educational courses and ongoing medical support all basics in the west but hardly universal in russia yet staff say these on the main reasons for their success. doesn't matter how good the facilities are here or what care the children receive we all of the staff here still know that an orphanage is no substitute for family a quick straw poll shows as much if your. there are three of us here me and my two sisters we really want to be adopted by the same family but not everyone wants three kids into orphanages track record is anything to go by they'll soon find a family may care to find new families but these children are commendable but under is only so much that an orphanage can do to solve the problem of adoption tearing
across them and not only dr for children from all from the genome born but also sits on an adoptive parents committee yes can you because i think the problem is the social attitudes towards the children it's not a case of money where now marriage family all the state support is really there you just have to love the children themselves along with fourteen so she was betrayed by her parents and those who promised the doctor and never did then she finally found a home. in the home you're always just a part of the group but here in the family you are needed by someone there is not tenderness more love i'm happy. for the asking. so often it does make an effort to connect with the world outside and adoption becomes more widespread and society will be more happy endings like this one. i'm standing here with you have a conflict on over who is a citizen of iraq and hopefully should provide us with the normal person's
perspective. all these officials are telling us that the situation with adoption of improving more and more children finding your parents for your own operations is the case is a becoming more popular yeah i think that this if you see the doctor has to. be held and see here read to him there are more and more. who wants to babysit the chilling tale of pills either the pair of health problems all the balls to somebody here or bolts maybe some of their. little premiums from the government just to prove that you know there are people who are wrong all hinges their very perspective people. have a good future they have a good job center person so the did their best to achieve big names leave their lives do you think they drift still some discrimination do you think when people
say this person you know it changes their opinion about this person i think it happens you know world but i can see that the situation is changing with this point too because the people are quite all around to live in our region among the my whole lives they acquired the children from old movies thank you very much i'll be speaking to them because the thought of a few lives there and let you be pulled in just about the. source isn't cumbia have given in to the demands of hundreds of women after they went on a sex strike and this month they spend such a days spurning their husbands advances until a mountain highway which connects their remote community to the wider world was resurfaced this week lori haas also known as the resident is asking people in new york would be willing to abstain.
in the strike of crossed legs colombian women withheld facts to get a road paved what is she would you withhold sex for this week let's talk about that right now the economy we need to do. so. it will get better gas. that also i think he says he says to be to still make six we were in france maybe for world peace or to end hunger or something like that nothing nothing no i don't think so. the deficit. in congress. is so if american moment that's having facts do you think it would change things here we would have solved the deficit crisis very quickly what was going to do it was going to do and if the story were to get their man motivated i can understand it would get me on the show pretty quick is there any thing that you would withhold
sat score are you kidding no i think it's an effective tactic. it certainly works beriah good for them do you think it would work anywhere in the world yes i think men and women interact the same way everywhere do you think it would work if men without socks to get something done no i mean if it weren't sure i think it's a little crazy but i mean hey you gotta do what you gotta do is no crazier than going to war and shooting people to get things done that is very true whether or not you agree with these women tactic the bottom line is it got the job done with no violence needed. a year after date of event with every part of our top stories in just a few moments stay with.
